GAME OVER, PETE WATSON careens from one wacky situation to another, leaving logic and character development far behind. That's OK, though, because the book has the cheerful, anarchic spirit of a Looney Tunes short. Author Joe Schreiber keeps the jokes -- about X-Ray Specs, mechanical cockroaches, video games, hypnotism, and much more -- coming thick and fast. Andy Rash's cartoonish black-and-white spot illustrations add an extra layer of pleasing goofiness.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
